Two-step claim payment dispute process

There are two steps to the claim payment dispute process, and both can be accomplished in one place – through

  1. Claim payment reconsideration. This is your initial request asking us to investigate the outcome of a claim. Most issues are resolved during reconsideration, which we try to resolve within 30 days. In those instances when additional documentation is needed, the determination may go beyond 30 days. If this occurs, we will notify you. You can access notifications about delays and determinations conveniently from your dashboard.
  2. Claim payment appeal. If you disagree with the outcome from the reconsideration determination, you may request an additional review. When submitting a claim payment appeal, include the additional information needed to help us understand why the claim requires additional review. If a claim payment appeal requires clinical expertise, it will be reviewed by the appropriate Anthem clinical professionals. We make every effort to resolve the claim payment appeals within 60 days. If additional information is required to make a determination, notification will be available on your dashboard.
